Mother of Dragons

Photos by Ned Harris 6/12/2013

This lady not only posed for a long time, she also kept returning to the same spot. A female Flame Skimmer dragonfly. How do I know that? Ned told me : -) With a few exceptions, though, you can tell a dragonfly from a damselfly by looking at their wings when 'perched.' Dragonflies hold their wings out (photo above); damselflies hold their wings parallel to their body.
